In my work with Danish Embassy, advising the Government of Bolivia to implement

the No. 169 Convention of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), one of the
most important applied during my practice and as part of the team responsible for
the development of laws, was incorporated into laws and land policies . ILO
Conventions 29 and 105.
Other important instruments: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the

I have total availability and flexibility in my time to devote myself to my job with

children need has limited my time in some past situations, where I did my work with
stress. However, currently with great daughters, they demand much less time and
require less responsibility, care and protection of my as mother and that, certainly
gives me freedom to devote much time to work. I have a daughter with mental
disabilities, but in a job and dedicated delivery to it for many years, she has
independence to move inside the House and stock up on their survival. It is this
experience of life, lack of standards, although they exist, I learned to appreciate
much more to those who need it and have deep commitment and fortitude for works
for the rights of the most vulnerable, such as indigenous peoples and women. I have
the flexibility of time to dedicate myself to my work with deep love, passion and
commitment and respect.
